What I Suspected...

Thank you for this validation. It is what I feared. On the Rox site, it said the 1 3/4’” risers would fit the Versys 1000, but one customer said he or she has to release the plastic cable carrier and the metal wire clip that restrains the bundles and brake lines at the right top of the fork to make it work. I am not comfortable doing that. I noticed the front brake cable was short. I am not willing to gamble safety for comfort in this case. Bummer. Oh well.

With all the pollution and climate change, what kind of world will we leave Keith Richards?
